Modes of disagreement in Bioethics: the public and the experts.

Hugo Viciana

Hugo Viciana of Instituto de Estudios Sociales Avanzados (IESA-CSIC).


This project uses a survey of a representative sample to investigate how the Spanish population conceives disagreements around a list of prototypical ethical questions. The project also aims to identify social and cognitive correlations to propose a model for understanding popular attitudes around disagreement in this area. Finally, it will conduct a study with healthcare and bioethics professionals to examine aspects where the reasoning of specialists tends to differ from that of the general population.
